Here is a quick Q and A on goals for this New Year. I don’t usually have new years resolutions. I am not someone who thinks that the new years is really a ‘restart’ button of some kind. I get that this is a great way for some people to see it as an opportunity to track goals, but for me, I try to make goals when it feels right for me. Either way, here is a short Q and A on the New Year and what it will look like.
What does the middle of the year look like for you?
I am hoping to be able to expand my following, build out my blog, spend lots of time with my family and hopefully be able to travel at least 3 times in a plane!
How do you stay motivated on your goals throughout the year?
The biggest thing that I find helpful when it comes to staying focused is to have small reminders around me all the time that motivate me. I am a big believer in self-motivation being the key to success. For example, for me to stay focused on positive body image, I make sure to surround myself with others who are also preaching positive body image. Same goes with a diet. Don’t hang outside a pizza place if you’re trying to watch your weight.
What is one thing you regret from last year in 2018?
Hmm that’s a tough one. I wouldn’t say I regret anything, but I will say that I wished I had taken the initiative sooner to start my blog. I have only been blogging since September of 2018 but I wish I had started a lot sooner!
Does it feel like 2019?
No! I am defiantly going to struggle with writing the date correctly. For the first few months I will need to keep white out with me or write in pencil.
Did you make it to midnight on New Years Eve?
Nope! I haven’t made it til midnight for the last 5 years… I was in bed by 9:30pm that evening.
Do you see 2019 being a better year than 2018?
I am always hoping for each year to be better than the next. Unfortunately, we got some pretty hard news on New Years Eve. My father in law suddenly passed away so I would say so far this year hasn’t been off to the best start. I am hoping this year will get better and bring our family joy.
What is your biggest goal for the upcoming year?
My biggest goal and ambition would be to be happy. Always my happiness comes first before anything else. I want to make sure that those around me are also happy. An actual tangible goal would be to travel more!
Happy New Year everyone!
Hope 2019 is filled with positive vibes & great memories.
